50 YEARS AGO......1963

    Final approval has been given for a federal appropriation of $16,500 with county matching funds to construct an addition to the administration building at the Plumas County fairgrounds in Quincy.

    Plumas County's budget for the new fiscal year is $3,603,231. The budget last year was $3,487,069, a difference of $ 16,162.00.

25 YEARS AGO.......1988

    After two days of recounting ballots cast for Plumas County Superior judge and finding no change in nine precincts, Superior County judge candidate Roger Settlemire stopped the recount that he requested. He was 15 votes

10 YEARS AGO......2003

    Forty-first annual Gold Diggers Day events will be held in Greenville this weekend.
